Gray area in life

This is a well-acted film for sure. It's nice to see Josh Duhamel in a gritty, dramatic role (brown teeth for the part even). The actor who portrays the kid was excellent as well.

This is a road movie drama with suspense and intrigue. Slow-moving at at times, it's got a moody, eerie feel that just pulls you right in. Should you like Josh's character, should you not? Those answers are not all forthcoming immediately. It's interesting to watch the bond develop between his character and the boy, and at times, your perspective on that may change (true bond? Stockholm Syndrome?). In the extra features, Josh says this was a movie he was trying to make for a long time. It's a independent film definitely worth watching.

rambling road trip

Petty criminal John (Josh Duhamel) goes into a gas station and the clerk pulls a gun on him. One week earlier, he gives Louis a ride to his grandparents after his mother's funeral. John pulls a bunch of holdups. They pick up Mary (Lynn Collins) and Rose along the way.

It's kind of a mumblecore crime spree road trip indie. It's not that interesting until the first escape where Louis has to get air. I don't get the situation where they first get together. It's unmotivated until the reveal much later. It leaves the movie feeling rambling at times. It's still questionable why Louis would leave a perfectly fine bus for a ride with a stranger. It's basic stranger danger. Duhamel is barely able to fill the screen by himself and the boy isn't that helpful. There are a few interesting moments but it is lackluster overall. It needs more to tie the reveal into something more poignant. It needs to convince me why the kid would follow a guy he never met before. It would be easier if he's simply hitchhiking and John picks him up.

We all want to go "home," but where is it?

I, like most reviewers here, stumbled across this movie and didn't expect to get pulled in like I did. I've watched it 4 times now, and I've noticed some new detail that makes me like it even better each time through. The acting was so good that I forgot it was a movie, and as other reviewers have said here, both male leads show lots of potential for future success. Everyone else seems to have predicted the ending; guess I'm naive or slow, as the final scene when the boy is looking at the photos on the wall in his mother's childhood bedroom is when it all fell into place for me. No one else has mentioned the excellent acting by the grandmother, maybe because she has such a small role, but she was really perfect. Just the kind of grandma this kid needed at the end of a hard and dusty road. I hope to see more from these two "Joshes", as both were so well-cast in their roles that one must attribute such a good fit in part to talented acting. Even though we never really see the boy's deceased mother alive in the film, she plays a strong role, too, and her presence in photos, lying in her little casket in the church, and in the newspaper obituary "John" is holding near the film's beginning, add the right amount of believability, and made me care even more about her boy and his eventual safe passage to his grandparents' home.
